THAT'S IT FOR ANOTHER YEAR!
Hi Everyone. Back to normal now after the festive celebrations!
Watched as the Arcade's Christmas tree was taken down, chopped up and put into the shredder along with Hungerford's huge central tree and all the smaller trees up and down the High Street (see pictures). What a marvellous and efficient job all the chaps did to get the town clean and tidy again for another glorious year!
The Arcade has had a good start to the New Year and inside all the ceilings and beams are getting a fresh coat of paint (David is camera shy so I'm afraid there are no pictures of the wonderful job he is doing) and everyone seems quite jolly - especially the customers! Everyone's had a fabulous Christmas and quite extraordinarily, most seem quite excited at the prospect of a New Year! I suspect it is because people think that it cannot be as bad as the last few years!!!...Can it????
Behind the counter is gorgeous Pauline Hawkins (Unit 9) and wonderful manager, Don Greenslade. Standing outside one of their units is glamorous Chris Pym (Units 3, 4 & 120). No wonder the Arcade is so popular! I will let you meet more of the stallholders and staff another day.
Best wishes to you all,
